“I’m so thankful for the atom bombs.” — WWII vet

IL_NGTODAY’S CONVENTIONAL WISDOM
says that dropping two nuclear bombs on Japan to end World War II was wrong, despite the clear evidence of the even worse alternative: sending thousands upon thousands of American soldiers to invade the Japanese homeland.

The estimates on the resulting casualties helped convince President Truman that the atom bomb was the way to go. I greatly and appreciate Truman’s decision and admire his steely resolve.

He must have known there’d be critics. Yet, he wasn’t worried about how the naysayers would try to rewrite the past.

Revisionist leftist historians, often anti-American in outlook, cry foul, but always fail to mention the masses who would have died trying to force Imperial Japan into reality that their ignoble cause was lost.

One of those revisionist leftists, the haughty John Kerry, a career politician now serving as our secretary of state, recently visited Hiroshima.

I am so very thankful for politically incorrect World War II vets.
